Environmental Summary

UV: 1

UK Range: 1-7

Pollution: Low

UK Range: Low to Very High

Met Office Warnings Issued For: North Ayrshire

  1. Yellow early warning of rain

    0300 on Sun 21 December
    1500 on Mon 22 December
    Updated 19 December at 11:25


    Outbreaks of rain reaching northwest Scotland in the early hours of Sunday will spread southeast across the country during the day. The rain will become persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. The heaviest rain looks like becoming more confined to southwest Scotland later on Sunday before potentially moving north again on Monday morning, finally clearing on Monday afternoon.

    The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, particularly on the road network, where there will be a lot of surface water and spray.

A list of all UK Warnings can be found on our More UK Weather page.
